An inefficient virus kills its host. A clever virus stays with it. – James Lovelock
An effective Security & Virus Protection strategy is a fundamental component of an effective Information Technology policy.
Data must be accessible and maintain integrity for general use by all users. What is a virus ? Simply put, a virus is a computer program which can copy itself and infect a computer and/or networked device exposing you to Hacking.
Viruses can increase their chances of spreading to other computers by infecting files on a network or internet that is accessed by another computer. Viruses can disrupt a business operation, destroy data and potentially cost thousands of dollars in lost revenue.
Most businesses recognise the need to implement anti-virus protections into their IT systems, but too often the level or type of protection is ineffective, inadequate and simply does not offer the safeguards anticipated.
Unfortunately, networks and data remain quite vulnerable from both external and internal security threats and require the most appropriate security measures. IT Security and Cyber Security have both never been as important as it is today, with the increasing need for high-speed internet connections, data communication, and remote connections in businesses.
The threat of exposure to attacks or unauthorised users to your Information Technology architecture has never been greater. It is critical that businesses utilize the recommended software and hardware devices to secure these systems and protect the greatest asset within your business – your data!
Anti virus protection can be deployed over a small single office network through to multi office environments with advanced client server architecture. Deploying the correct product is essential in order to provide the most appropriate level of protection. All businesses should be running anti virus protection software.
If your business doesn’t or if you have any concerns about your existing antivirus product and the level of protection it affords your IT system, then please get in touch to discuss further.
We offer an IT Assessment which will also evaluate the security and virus protection level of a business. We identify any potential vulnerabilities which could result from poor or improper system configuration, known and/or unknown hardware or software flaws, or operational weaknesses. This covers aspects of your IT systems including network infrastructure, operating systems, applications, data & hardware.
The benefit of such testing will expose vulnerabilities in your network and business, lessen the likelihood of being attacked, locate and disable vulnerable access points and implement proper IT Planning policies to protect your business operation.
